It’s movie night and you want a quick snack. Popcorn is such a cheap and easy nibble to knock up. Personally I’m more keen on savoury options, but what if you want popcorn after dinner? Sweet is then the only way to go!
While you can just sprinkle some sugar on your popcorn, there are far more adventurous things you can do. You could pour them into melted chocolate and let them set so that they’re coated, but if you had chocolate, wouldn’t you just have that as your snack?
Here’s my recipe for quick and easy homemade toffee popcorn. I use rapeseed (canola) oil as it has a high smoking point. If you want more of a sauce than a coating, add a dash of cream to butter and sugar mixture.
|50 grams dark muscovado sugar|
|40 grams butter|
|Pinch of salt|
|5 ml lemon juice|
|60 grams popcorn kernels|
|1 tablespoon rapeseed oil|
Don’t worry if the popcorn isn’t completely coated all over, it is supposed to be a light coating. Too much toffee and your popcorn will stick together.
